correspondent lisa stark on the phone with us. what do we know? >> reporter: well, chris, what we know is that a computer that inputs flight plans, electronically so the controllers have those flight plans apparently there's some glitch in that computer right now. it may have failed entirely. other reports there's just something going on that the faa can't figure out but the bottom line is that no electronic flight plans are being put into this computer. that means controllers have to input all the flight information manually and that is causing delays nationwide everywhere around the country according to the faa. >> lisa, any sense of how long or whether or not you should even go to the airport? >> reporter: well, i think flights are taking off but they are being delayed. you might want to check with your carrier to see how delayed. what we're told by controllers, for example, is that at new york's jfk airport they're operating only at about 40% to 50% of efficiency. they're have to go to spread planes out in the air about twice the distance that they usually do so there is definitely

of you at a white house stakeholder briefing i hosted with lisa jackson, the administrator of our environmental action agency. at that briefing, we talked about many of the steps my department is taking in this area from funding research on the health cost of greenhouse gas emissions to investing in communities, to help them respond to climate related disease, to slashing greenhouse gas emissions in our own buildings. this is not an afterthought for my department. this is a key part of our broader public health strategy. more and more, we understand that health is not something that happens just in doctors offices. whether you're healthy or not depends on what to eat and drink, what you breathe, how you get around, and where you this. a world that's eating up and powered by paul fired plants that fill the sky with harmful greenhouse gas is going to have fewer healthy people that a world that runs on clean, renewable energy. that's why even if our planet was not in jeopardy, even if energy independence was not crucial to our national security, and even if clean energy was not a hug
